Offense has been awful of late. Was considering trading Machado and/or Carrasco to upgrade LF or SP. Thoughts?



Also have a proposed deal to me

Send :
Sale, Carrasco and Segura
Tulo, Nova, Casilla.

Feel like I would need more given the lack of depth in SP on the wire. Don’t feel like my team gets better plus the Injury risk of Tulo feels like that of a pitcher.



No. No, no, no.
